Information from the guilding network provided us with a local dungeon, filled with treasures and other objects of interest. We entered not knowing what to expect. But were greeted with a grey orb.
I ordered the dwarf to touch the orb. It exploded! And creatures came out of the stonework. We continued combat with these things but alas, the dwarf was dominated and knocked out. In our attempts to free him from his bondage, I summoned parts of an old ice dragon which taught me most of my tricks. He’s now dead. At least he’s worth something in gold pieces.
But as we have no further choice, we return back to town once again. Awaiting for the souls of our allies to return to their plushies so that we can adventure on.
